Breast lift after implants

Common Questions and Answers about Breast lift after implants


Avatar f tn It costs as much to have the implants removed and have a breast lift as it does to have implants. Right now you could probably get reasonable FIXED RATE financing to have this done. Ask at the Doctors office, look on the net for reviews of this sort of thing... When I had my implants removed, I also had a mastopexy (or breast lift). I was very happy with my results and very glad to have the effects from the silicon gradually disappear.
427258 tn?1266448842 I have been having an internal conflict with myself and my husband about Breast Implants and Lift. Since having my children my breasts have changed sizes numerous times as well as lost the 'perkiness'. I am young and have worked hard to try and get my body back into shape. I know I am a mother, but I want a typical 24 y/o body, is that selfish? What are your thoughts about getting the procedure done? Have you personally done it and if so what can I expect as far as price and recovery etc.
Avatar n tn Dear Doctor, I am early 50's, contemplating breast lift surgery. I may have implants done at the same time. My main concerns are these: 1) Will the nipple sensation be the same after surgery and recovery? Nipple feeling is a big part of arousal for me and I would hate to lose it. 2) At my age, should I be concerned about the life of implants? I would rather not do anything that will certainly require additional surgery if I live to be elderly. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I had implants with a redo breast lift 3 months ago. I had lost about 100 lbs before the first lift 2 years ago, and then another 70 lbs before the second lift. During the second surgery the doctor also put in under the muscle memory gel implants. For the first month my breast where up and perky and fabulous. But since they have seem to loose all fullness on top and begin to sag again, like they werent lifted at all.
Avatar f tn I had a breast lift with silicone implants and a mini tummy tuck 5 weeks ago. Approximately 2 weeks after surgery the incision area under both breasts opened quite quickly. Within a couple of days the wounds were significantly large and weeping. For the last 3 weeks I have been on oral antibiotics and treating the wounds twice a day with silver sulfadiazine. I don't see any sign of healing and my PS will determine today if I need to be seen by a specialist.
Avatar f tn when i put the creasent or doughnut lift forward to my surgeon in my pre op consultations he was unsure what they were so i decided to go with the lolly pop lift as i did not want him to perform a procedure he was not familier with ( my surgeon is abroad in cyprus ) My question is, is it still possible to have a lift now that i have breast implants as i feel that my breasts still have sag and which of the lifts would you recommend is best with an implant already in place.
Avatar m tn I'm 40, childless (which means ptosis was not due to breast feeding) and had a breast lift 4 weeks ago. Implants were out of the question for me. If you want perkiness a lift, whether the incisions will be concentric, lollipop or inverted T is for you to discuss AT LENGTH with a plastic surgeon. I received an inverted T, which I am not at all happy with because the P.S. that did my breasts did not specify that during my consultation.
Avatar n tn The rippling you describe is probably the result of saline implants. Gel implants will not do this very often. It wounds like you need a revision of the lift with new implants. Every office has different policies regarding revision surgery, and I cannot speak for the surgical group you are seeing. My bet is that there will be some charge after three years post surgery, but it may be possible to work out some reduction of fees for the revision.
Avatar n tn i had breast implants 6 weeks ago. when i look down i cant see my nipples they are so low down. the doctor never mentioned anything about an uplift at the consultation. i no they say to give it 6 months to see if they settle but i think they both need 2 be at least a good inch higher up. the just look deformed to me, theres no way i would ov had them done if i knew they would turn out like this.
Avatar n tn Hi there! I initially had breast augmentation with saline implants in '98. In '02 I decided to go a little bigger.(Mcghan 390cc filled to 430 cc's) Dr. said I was borderline for needing lift, but thought implants alone would be sufficient. The first couple of years they looked great, but now my nipple is looking a little low on breast mound. I was wondering if I had lift if I could get away with using same implants, or do I need a new set? If I got new ones could I get silicone?
142722 tn?1281537216 First, breast feeding will not likely be a problem with breast implants in place. Breast feeding will not affect the position or the size of youre breast implants themselves. However, the overlying breast tissue may well undergo changes after you complete nursing. These involutional changes can result in loss of breast volume with accompanying sagging due to excess skin.
Avatar f tn I have saline breast implants that I got 14 years ago. I regretted doing it about 5 minutes after I woke up and have been very unhappy ever since. My breasts are normal in size but I do not like the feeling of having something foreign in my body and believe it to have caused some problems with my health. I would like to have them removed but the surgeon I went to told me it would not be pretty. Has anyone had implants removed? And if so, can you ever look normal again?
142722 tn?1281537216 I'm sure they will be fine. I don't know how old you are, but I'm 44, and gravity had also taken it's toll. I just went ahead and had it done since I was having to have one of them replaced because of leakage. This way they are both new and it will keep me from having to have a lift for a few more years, because it filled them out nicely. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Having a breast augmentation will not affect your ability to breast feed. It may be that you need more than just implants, but also possibly a lift. Although many patients who have implants and become pregnant show no adverse effect on breast shape, others have significant involution of breast tissue and become smaller and more saggy after their pregnancy.
1174607 tn?1264177183 My surgeon is wanting me to do a lift and implants to fix a lumpectomy that I had in May of 2009. It wasn't cancer, it was a galactocile the size of a softball that solidified (after trauma to my milk ducts during a car accident in Feb 2008 5wks after baby). Anyway, I have an inverted nipple and you can see were the seatbelt went thru my breast and he said due to the trauma he wanted to do the lift first and let that heal, and then do the implants.
Avatar n tn Milk usually comes in after you have the baby. Do chest lift exercises to help keep your form after you have the baby. Keep those chest muscles strong.
Avatar n tn How long should i wait before having a breast lift/implants after giving birth?
Avatar n tn I had what I was told was to be both a breast lift and implants. To begin with I had two consultations with the Dr. and both times I decided the 375 cc size was the right size. He also said that he could get "very good" results with the breast lift. At my first consultation post op, I found out that he used implants that were 475 cc and overfilled them to 520 or so. 1.
Avatar n tn I had breast implants done about four years ago, what effect will this have on breastfeeding, boobs are killing me already, am only early in pregnancy, 7wks 2 days, they are even more sensitive than they were before I had implants done when breastfeedng other two babies.
Avatar n tn Hi... just wondering if anyone has managed to breast feed after having a breast reduction?
Avatar n tn In my experience, it is unusual to require a lift after explantation, even with 500 cc implants. In addition, lift will require additional external scarring. Although your breasts will be obviously smaller, I would suggest implant removal as a fist step. After three or four months or more, if you strongly feel an lift is necessary, you can then undergo this procedure.
Avatar m tn I'm thinking about getting Breast implants, but worried on any long term effects. Can anyone share their experience? I'm also thinking about using Anyone know of him?
Avatar n tn Your real risk is extension of the problem ino the cavity where the breast implants were placed and secondary infection. Careful follow-up with your doctor as you are doing is your best solution for a successful outcome.
Avatar f tn If your breast scarring from the augmentation healed well, then I would expect a similar result from scarring with a breast lift. A reduction of implant size with a lift would be an appropriate operation. It should not be considered until after three or four months after you baby comes or after you stop nursing.
Avatar n tn I recently had a breast lift with implants a week ago tomorrow. Is it normal for one breast to appear larger than the other? Is this b/c of swelling? The day after my surgery my breasts were perfect and now they don't look as good. Will they look like the 1 day post op again after the swelling goes down?
Avatar n tn Do you want the implants out. Implants can be removed with satisfactory results, but occasionally a lift procedure is also appropriate if shaping is necessary and you are willing to accept additional scars from a lift. As you can see from my comments, it is impossible to answer your question with an examination and additional information.
Avatar f tn Im only 21 but have had 2 children and breast fed them both..(still feeding my nb) but i was thinking when im finished I might consider a boob job.. going from a AAA 32 to just back to what i was before my first pregnancy (just a nice perky B lol)they just look so sad YEA IM INSECURE ABOUT THEM...they are just for myself and my husband. ..does anyone have them and regret them?
